I have around 6000 text files and I need to change the first line on every one of them.

The first line is the title of the article and I need it look like this <title>the name of the article</title>

every file has the first line and the it starts the article on the second line

The files are in many directory under one main directory
like this

top directory

I need a script that will loop through each directory look at each file extract the first line and replace it with the example above. I have figured out how to pull the first line into an array but I don't no where to go from there to look in each directory and the write the data back at the top.

$f = file('GENERAL HISTORY OF DOGS.txt');
$a = '<title>' . $f[0] . '</title>';
echo $a;

Something like this should do what you want: http://pastebin.com/jKvAiGYa
